Pierre Grimes and the Noetic Society

Overview

The Noetic Society is a 501(c)(3) non-profit group with members in Southern California and around the world, who have been inspired to study Homer, Parmenides, the pre-Socratics, Plato, the neo-Platonists, and other perennial philosophers and mystics, not for academic reasons, but for personal spiritual growth. The society was founded by Pierre Grimes, PhD in 1967, and was incorporated in 1978.

Synopsis Nice review and continuation of yesterday evening's (un-recorded) chat with Pierre at the Women's Club about the necessity for the philosophy of the Self. Much of the discussion focuses on the place for "Logos", and the special Platonic meaning of the terms, "Justice", and the post-midwife-talk experience (after one sees how a pathologos plays out in their family in a past scene, etc.). Relating Justice to Joriki (in Zen Buddhism) and other near-Eastern philosophy...
